However, you cannot experience the fullness of life without experiencing the messiness of life. Mess is part of life, not something extra that can be done away with if you just manage to live the right way. (The mistaken belief behind the pursuit of happiness as a goal is that you can actually control your life and your experience of life.)
Because control is an illusion, the only question is how to meet what happens in your life. Tokmé Zongpo, in verses 12-19 of Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva, provides frighteningly cogent instruction on just this point, relying on the practice of Mahayana mind training in general and taking and sending in particular. He isn’t talking about how to be happy, at least not in any normal sense of that word, but how to be free and at peace in whatever life throws at you.
As I wrote in an a post on my own blog, when you start to practice, you don’t necessarily start with this motivation:
You may begin to practice with the idea that it will help you in your life, but as time goes on, you realize that you have become more interested in what you can accomplish through the practice (awakening, presence, whatever you want to call it). But as still more time goes by, you come to appreciate that any kind of goal, any kind of objective, prevents you from being present in your experience and, increasingly, the only thing to do is experience whatever is arising as completely as possible.
From this perspective, you might think of spiritual practice as akin to artistic expression, be it dance, poetry, painting, or music. You can take up art because you enjoy it, because it helps you in some way, but when it is your life, it requires a different level of commitment.
Ideas for 21st-century businesses pop spontaneously into Kelley Rajala’s mind.
The retailer/innovator is celebrating the first anniversary of what she hopes is becoming a bustling downtown Santa Rosa general store and community meeting place. But isn’t that a rather old concept? Rajala, 42, regards local, sustainable businesses that make communities more self-reliant and that don’t aspire to quick, fabulous profits as the new new.
She created and operates a cooperative on Fifth Street called Share Exchange. In the front, a consignment shop carries art, jewelry, crafts and other items made by Sonoma County people. Nearly 200 have their wares on display there.
“We signed up 10 or 15 new artists just in the last two weeks,” Rajala said. The year-round store between Mendocino Ave. and B Street “is filling a real need,” she said, for creators of handmade items who otherwise might rely on seasonal craft fairs and word of mouth.
“They have a really hard time marketing themselves,” Rajala said.
Behind the retail shop at Share Exchange is a brightly painted and high-roofed “co-working” space, Sonoma County’s first. Independent entrepreneurs and small nonprofits that may be unable to afford their own offices pay to use the work spaces, communal conference room and shared business technology located there.
Among its 40 current tenants are a game programmer, videographer, the North Bay Organizing Project and a solar company. Already, the entrepreneurs who use the co-working space have opportunities to share business ideas. Rajala intends soon to introduce more formal business-incubation services.
She doesn’t imagine the next Apple or Facebook being born there. She believes the weakened economy and job market and the complexity of global economic and environmental issues have spawned a need for people to collaborate on businesses that provide consumers with local goods, farm products and services.
Rajala, who co-founded and for a time directed the Sonoma County GoLocal Cooperative, figures that for every item made and purchased locally, there is one that doesn’t have to be manufactured abroad and shipped here, generating greenhouse gases. “We call that import substitution, or import replacement.”
As much as she has enjoyed the growth and popularity of the Share Exchange shop, she would like to expand the inventory to include more locally made, everyday household items of the type carried by a general store. She envisions a larger, perhaps more central retail space stocked with all manner of Sonoma County products and, in the back, a vigorous incubator hatching new, local businesses.
Spoiler Alert! Oscars 2014 – for Best Most American Film Pre-Released
According to a stunning new report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, nearly a third of all food produced in the United States gets wasted. We are probably the most wasteful society in the history of the planet, and we are also one of the most gluttonous. More than 35 percent of all Americans are considered to be officially “obese” by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.This era of gluttony and taking food for granted will soon be coming to an end.Thanks to crippling drought in key growing areas and other extremely bizarre weather patterns, a massive food crisis is beginning to emerge all over the planet. If you don’t think that this is going to affect you, then you simply are not paying attention. Approximately half
of all produce grown in the United States comes from the state of California, and right now California is suffering through the worst stretch of drought on record. Food prices are going to start soaring
, and that is going to affect the household budget of every family in America.
This is now going on all across the state of CA. As the Feds have said “No Mas Agua”, muni’s are having to make the choices guided and directed what to say to the sheeple when the water doesn’t show up by big politico’s driving around in black limo’s.
“Vulgus vult decepi — the (common) people wish to be deceived.” — Phaedrus
This past Monday, elected officials and public services staff people from throughout inland Mendocino County met with at least five of the State of California’s highest ranking regulatory officials who deal with water issues. It was heralded as a “listening session” regarding a topic foremost on everyone’s minds in Mendo-land: the drought.
The ‘listening session,’ which took place at the Ukiah Valley Conference Center on School St., actually involved ‘listening’ only to a carefully-selected and well-placed group of people, by a carefully-selected and well-placed group of people, for a carefully-selected and well-placed group of people (in the grand spirit of American democracy). The meeting was not publicly advertised. Those not on the 100 person-or-so invite list were prohibited from attending.
Apparently, the “listening session” is part of a “listening tour” whereby these same high-ranking officials will blow through numerous California towns, receive oft-contrived statements from local officials about the water problems local residents face and how they are addressing them. If Monday’s proceedings in Ukiah are an indication, the officials will also pause long enough at each stop to issue a handful of generic statements designed to garner platitudes from the corporate press about how much they care about us and admire our resilience in the face of adversity.
Maude Barlow: Saving Our Blue Future: Our Planet Needs A New Water Ethic
Humanity is polluting, mismanaging, and displacing our finite freshwater sources at an alarming rate. Since 1990, half the rivers in China have disappeared. The Ogallala Aquifer that supplies the U.S. breadbasket will be gone “in our lifetime,” the U.S. Department of Agriculture says.
By 2030, global demand for water will outstrip supply by 40 percent, a surefire recipe for great suffering. Five hundred scientists recently told UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that our collective abuse of water has caused the planet to enter “a new geologic age” and that the majority of the planet’s population lives within 31 miles of an endangered water source.
Yet in election after election the world over, no one’s paying attention to this urgent issue.
That’s why I’m calling for a new water ethic that places water and its protection at the heart of all policy and practice. This may strike you as far-fetched, but we must do it now. The future of the planet and the human race both depend on it.
And taking our water crisis seriously will change everything.
CA Energy Bills Set to Skyrocket as Drought Continues; Solar Power Use Set to Increase Quickly
factoid: When Obama started his administration there 3% of the energy used was by solar. Today, it is still 3%.
Never mind the restrictions on watering your lawn. The drought is drying up California’s supply of hydroelectricity, prompting SMUD and other utilities around the state to scramble.
With summer’s peak electricity demand season looming, officials who oversee California’s power supply say they don’t expect blackouts but are getting nervous about the meager snowpack. Few states rely on hydro as much as California, where water accounts for about 15 percent of the total power supply in a normal year.
There is no doubt that California is very dependent on hydroelectric energy to supplement its supply. According to the California Energy Commission (CEC), on average, hydroelectric power generation constitutes between 10 and 27 percent of California’s annual energy supply, depending on what type of water year the region is experiencing. California has 386 hydropower facilities capable of producing about 14,100 megawatts (MW) of electricity – the second largest source of power supply for the state after oil/gas thermal generating units. Comparatively, the Pacific Northwest’s 314 hydro plants produce close to 32,000 MW of electricity – a source for about 10 percent of California’s overall electricity supply.
To top it off, the power crunch has come at an inopportune time in the state’s water cycle.
PG&E’s hydroelectric system provides Californians with safe, reliable and clean energy from a renewable resource. The largest investor-owned hydroelectric system in the nation, its history dates back to the days of California’s Gold Rush.
Simply put, hydroelectricity is generated by the force of falling water. A series of dams and reservoirs on river basins collect water. The water is then directed through large pipes (called penstocks) to turbines that spin generators to create electricity.
- PG&E’s hydroelectric system is built along 16 river basins stretching nearly 500 miles from Redding in the north to Bakersfield in the south.
- Water used to power the hydroelectric system comes from more than 100 reservoirs located mostly in the higher elevations of California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range.
- Our 68 powerhouses have a total generating capacity of 3,896 megawatts, which is enough power to meet the needs of nearly 4 million homes
Sandy Hook – NO DEATHS, NO VICTIMS; According to SSDI Official Master File
The Sandy Hook shooting official narrative is now dead. We have seen in previous films how the Newtown school “shooting” was interconnected not only to the CIA, but also that Dawn Hochsprung – a supposed ‘victim’ of the event – is closely related to the family of a key propagandist. This propagandist AND Hochsprung are secretly and closely related to Peter Lanza – and therefore to the entire “Lanza” family!
While some geneology websites list the ‘official’ Sandy Hook victims in database searches, it was discovered that NONE of the “deaths” were actually traceable to the town of Sandy Hook in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Why? Inconsistencies in the various proprietary databases suggested TAMPERING WITH THR RECORDS as the cause. Indeed, it has been revealed that a systematic effort was made about one year before the “massacre”, to block or limit public access to such records!
In this document, you will see the results of a painstakingly thorough search of the ORIGINAL Social Security Death Master File for the Sandy Hook “victims.” The results ar shocking. A great deal of information is made available, so anyone can verify the result for themselves.
The Boston Marathon “bombing” taught us much about how the fake death industry works – particularly in connection with Sandy Hook (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m07q7… — The Fake Death Industry). Here, we can see it in action, with the people who put it to use.
This information may help others who are now beginning the REAL investigation into Sandy Hook again. Now that the fake ‘official’ investigation has concluded so infamously.

“GEOENGINEERING MUST CONTINUE”, government officials say, “OR ELSE!”
– The Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that, despite global side effects and long-term consequences, geoengineering techniques involving solar radiation management (SRM) should be maintained:
“If SRM were terminated for any reason, there is high confidence that global surface temperatures would rise very rapidly to values consistent with the greenhouse gas forcing.” [emphasis in original]
“Climate Change 2013: The Physical Science Basis,” (referred to as “AR5”) supersedes the former report published in 2007. The IPCC’s First Assessment Report was published in 1990. (In case the Summary containing that warning is changed, here is the version downloaded on Nov. 3, 2013.)
The discussion in the Summary for Policymakers and in the body of AR5 commends solar radiation management over carbon dioxide removal methods, which are limited in their efficacy on a global scale, yet admits that neither are ideal, and that both geoengineering techniques will have long-term and potentially unknown consequences.
“While the entire community of academia still pretends not to know about the ongoing reality of global geoengineering,” comments Dane Wigington at Geoengineering Watch, “the simple fact that they are now discussing geoengineering in the latest IPCC report indicates that the veil is beginning to lift.”
Solar radiation management comprises various techniques aimed at reflecting or diverting solar radiation back into space, essentially increasing the planet’s albedo (reflectivity). Many geoengineers, along with the IPCC, prefer solar radiation management methods for carbon dioxide removal as a climate fix, given the planet’s complex carbon feedback loops, and the much cheaper and quicker method of spraying our skies with albedo-enhancing particles.
“Block the sun but continue to spew billions of tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere,” is how Eli Kintisch characterizes SRM in his 2010 book, Hack the Planet.

Right out of the chute, here’s my question: What’s going on in the skies above the USA (and globally) that you will not admit to, but apparently are involved with, including obviously preventing the media and press from reporting about your involvement in weather geoengineering.  It apparently is a conspiracy since so many U.S. government agencies obviously are involved either by active participation or active deflective practices or deliberate media spin control.Before I go further with questioning, may I ask your individual public, honest and factual responses to the information in this YouTube presented by Mr. Dane Wigington, lead researcher for www.geoengineeringwatch.org
, who has investigated all levels of geoengineering from chemtrails to HAARP. 
Ukraine: A Deep State Analysis
The overall objective is to destroy Putin’s capacity to set marginal natural gas prices in Europe. If pipelines under the Baltic and Black Seas are feasible so are pipelines under the Mediterranean Sea from North Africa to France, and from the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean to Greece and southeastern Europe. Add some LPG terminals and European shale gas operations and this is achieved.
‘The Globe and Mail is reporting Russians have established checkpoints dozens of miles outside Sevastopol. The southern Crimean city is home to the Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
“The Globe and Mail saw least a dozen men wearing fatigues – supported by an armored personnel carrier – standing under a Russian flag at a checkpoint erected roughly halfway along the 80-kilometer road from Sevastopol to Simferopol, putting it close to the administrative border that separates the Sevastopol municipality from the rest of Crimea and Ukraine,” writes Mark MacKinnon for the Canadian newspaper. The men, wearing balaclavas, identified themselves as “volunteers.”
On Tuesday it was reported residents of the port city had signed up as volunteers in self-defense and pro-Russian groups. Crimeans are said to fear violence from Ukrainian nationalists in the northern part of the country.
More than 20,000 people chanting “Russia” attended a rally in Sevastopol on Monday calling for Crimea to secede from Ukraine. A larger rally protesting the coup in Kyiv was held on Sunday, according to Euronews.’

NATO Responds to Russian Mobilization Over Ukraine
‘On Monday we covered reports indicating Russia had bolstered its forces in Crimea and the Black Sea following the success of the Euromaidan coup in Ukraine.
The heightened military posture was officially confirmed on Wednesday when Russian President Vladimir Putin put troops in Western Europe on alert and the Russian military began combat readiness drills in Western and Central Europe.
Following the move by Russia, NATO announced its “close and long-standing” relationship with Ukraine. “NATO is a sincere friend of Ukraine,” said NATO boss Anders Fogh Rasmussen.
NATO arranged a joint commission with Ukraine in 1997. In 2008, it agreed the nation could join the NATO military alliance initially established during the Cold War.
“We stand ready to continue assisting Ukraine in its democratic reforms,” he added.’

One of New York’s lesser-known institutions of higher learning is making headlines after 13 confirmed cases, and counting, of mumps emerged on two of its campuses, prompting school officials to impetuously ban all unvaccinated students from attending classes. But these same reports clearly indicate that all affected students had already been vaccinated for mumps, proving once again the utter uselessness of vaccines and the imbecilic tendencies of organizations chained to the vaccine status quo.

Users of Apple AAPL +1.48% computers and iPhones may be shaken to the core at news of a major security flaw that could allow cyber spies and hackers to grab emails, financial information and other data from their devices.
Here’s what you need to know.
1. It’s time for some updates—right now
On Friday, Apple rushed the release of a fix for mobile devices running iOS, and most will update automatically, reports Reuters. The iOSs affected by this bug are as follows: iOS 6.x before 6.1.6 and 7.x before 7.0.6, Apple TV 6.x before 6.0.2, and Apple OS X 10.9.x before 10.9.2.
You can follow the instructions on how to check your Apple device to see if it is running an affected version of the iOS. If it is, download the latest version and upgrade your iOS. You can also go to your Settings menu to update your system through the “General” submenu.
This is the kind of update that should not be ignored, and it doesn’t take long to install. Apple has pushed out updates for iOS 7 users, as well as for iOS 6 users who’ve been wary to make the jump to the firm’s newest system. The firm has also released an update for Apple TV.
2. What is this flaw?
Affecting iOS devices and Mac computers, the bug allows a hacker to view unencrypted traffic that was believed to be encrypted between the user and a website. What this means is that when doing online banking or ecommerce purchases, all of your traffic could be unencrypted which could result in a man-in-the-middle attack. That’s high-tech eavesdropping in which an attacker on a shared network intercepts the communication between your browser and a site to monitor and record everything that you do over the Web.
The good news: A hacker must be on your local area network to exploit this bug, and if the WiFi or network you are on is using secure methods for access, the risk is minimized. In other words, if a hacker wanted to sit in a coffee shop and monitor WiFi traffic all day looking for affected versions of the Apple iOS, he or she could potentially steal your banking information. So take the cue: Avoid using your devices on a public network at least in the short-term.
‘Schooling plays a big role in programming the population, but the most potent and prevalent educational tools are the mass media. These are devised to reach a large audience via the broadcasting of information through natural means (spoken or written language, posters) or technological ones (radio, television, cinema, the Internet). With time, the elite has come to control all the important mass media outlets and are now able to dictate their contents.
The trick is easy. All the elite need to do is repeat the same simplistic lies in all the media and the population will believe them without a doubt. This is how lies acquire an irresistible aura of credibility. A specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe, explains it further:
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.”’

We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t! Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, all to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese , and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!
‘What the hell could possibly go wrong?’

The mobsters agents at the IRS have warned Americans that on their 2014 tax returns, they’ll be asked about their health insurance coverage.
‘The IRS is fully prepared to go after the American people if they neglect their “shared responsibility” under Obamacare, the government enforced mandate designed to enrich large insurance corporations and degrade the quality of healthcare in America.
Provisions of the unconstitutional and authoritarian law will fleece millions who either cannot or will not buy products from state-sanctioned preferred monopolies.
For Americans unable to afford over-priced healthcare the state will parcel out “hardship exemptions” to avoid government penalties and fines meted out by IRS enforcers. Others will receive “tax exemptions” to nudge them in the direction of universal government enforced semi-healthcare.’

Last night in Washington President Obama addressed the national meeting of Organizing for Action, the outfit formerly known as his re-election campaign. [If he can’t be re-elected to the White House, why is this organization still around? For this sort of dreck.] Young OFA volunteers have been redeployed to the task of persuading Americans to sign up for new health insurance plans created by the President’s Affordable Care Act. [“Affordable”… right. Have you lost your health care yet?] Mr. Obama urged his young fans to sign up as many people as possible before this year’s March 31 enrollment deadline. “The work you’re doing is God’s work,” he said. [I cannot express the depths of my contempt for his hypocrisy.]

About one week after a leak resulted in record levels of radiation near the United States’ first nuclear waste depository, more airborne radiation has been detected, according to the Associated Press.
The latest readings were confirmed on Monday by the US Department of Energy, which stated that multiple air tracking stations around the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in Carlsbad, New Mexico, are monitoring the situation.
Earlier this month, a sharp rise in radiation levels forced WIPP managers to suspend operations at the plant. As RT noted previously, the WIPP is one of three deep nuclear repositories in the world, storing leftover radioactive material 600 meters underground. The cause of the initial spike was linked to a leak inside one of the underground salt tunnels that holds nuclear waste.

When the Military, in this country, became aware of the existence of the Van Allen Belt, which surrounds the earth: Their reaction to this phenomena was to fire a nuclear missile into it “to see what happens”.
“WASHINGTON (UPI) — In 1964, a U.S atomic bomb blast in the Van Allen belts surrounding the earth almost permanently ended the U.S. space program, according to retired Gen. Ken Hannegan of the Defense Nuclear Agency. Hannegan spoke recently with United Press International.”
k) What this did do, was to affect the global- weather conditions in the radiation belt for the next 25 years, negatively. This was only one atomic bomb, in 1964: What is at issue now is the potential for a third World War with nuclear weapons worldwide?
“Hannegan acknowledged that during a 1964 test for a new U.S. anti-satellite weapon system, the United States fired an atomic bomb of about 50 KT (or two and a half times the strength of the Nagasaki bomb) in the Van Allen belts — areas of radiation and charged particles which surround the earth’s upper atmosphere and which are held in place by the earth’s magnetic field.
A prime suspect in the New York and Washington terrorists attacks, branded by the FBI as an “international terrorist” for his role in the African US embassy bombings, Saudi born Osama bin Laden was recruited during the Soviet-Afghan war “ironically under the auspices of the CIA, to fight Soviet invaders”.
In 1986 CIA chief William Casey committed CIA support to a long-standing ISI [Inter-Service Intelligence] to recruit from around the world to join the Afghan jihad. some 35,000 Muslim radicals from 40 Islamic countries joined Afghanistan’s fight between 1982 and 1992. Tens of thousands more came to study in Pakistani madrasahs. Eventually more than 100,000 foreign Muslim radicals were directly influenced by the Afghan jihad.
The Islamic jihad was supported by the United States and Saudi Arabia with a significant part of the funding generated from the Golden Crescent drug trade: In March 1985, President Reagan signed National Security Decision Directive 166,…[which] authorize[d] stepped-up covert military aid to the mujaheddin, and it made clear that the secret Afghan war had a new goal: to defeat Soviet troops in Afghanistan through covert action and encourage a Soviet withdrawal. The new covert U.S. assistance began with a dramatic increase in arms supplies — a steady rise to 65,000 tons annually by 1987, … as well as a “ceaseless stream” of CIA and Pentagon specialists who traveled to the secret headquarters of Pakistan’s ISI on the main road near Rawalpindi, Pakistan. There the CIA specialists met with Pakistani intelligence officers to help plan operations for the Afghan rebels.
Documentation showing Osama Bin Laden is CIA asset Tim Ossman.
Made in the USA
John Cooley, a former journalist with the US ABC television network and author of ‘Unholy Wars: Afghanistan, America and International Terrorism‘, has revealed that Muslims recruited in the US for the mujaheddin were sent to Camp Peary, the CIA’s spy training camp in Virginia, where young Afghans, Arabs from Egypt and Jordan, and even some African-American “black Muslims” were taught “sabotage skills”. November 1, 1998, British Independent reported that one of those charged with the 1998 bombings of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, Ali Mohammed, had trained “bin Laden’s operatives” in 1989. These “operatives” were recruited at the al Kifah Refugee Centre in Brooklyn, New York, given paramilitary training in the New York area and then sent to Afghanistan with US assistance to join Hekmatyar’s forces. Mohammed was a member of the US army’s elite Green Berets. The program was part of a Washington-approved plan called “ Operation Cyclone”.
The FBI had a source come in direct contact with Osama Bin Laden who learned of his desire to conduct terrorist attacks in the United States, though it failed to disclose this information to the landmark 9/11 Commission.
According to court documents reviewed by the Washington Times, the information secured by the Al-Qaeda mole helped the United States stop an attack on a Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles, California in the mid 1990s.

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: “Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
‘My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!’
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
